Why GTA V Should Be Delayed Again

Simon looks at the recent announcement on the PS4 and why Rockstar should push back the release date of GTA V to coincide with that launch date. (Grand Theft Auto V, Industry, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360)

no it should not.

After watching the Watch Dog demo at the PS4 even my hype level for GTA 5 has dropped from a 10 to a 5.

Those jaggies in GTA 5 are hurting my eyes :(

what i find iteresting about GTAV is how they want to make missions feel like block buster Hollywood film. that concept art where there robing a store in Beverly hills looks very Breaking Bad.

Watch Dogs looks stunning, hacking with your phone everything and everyone look refreshing in a open world games.

Here's a thought: Perhaps GTA was delayed because they want to be able to release a next gen version alongside a 360/PS3 version.

That and maybe a PC version too. One can only hope.

The PC version is all but guaranteed with next gen consoles being identical in hardware to PCs. Gone are the days where a game developed on a console would require extensive re-coding to port to PC and visa versa.

It would be cool if later on they released an enhanced version for PS4. I would love to see that happen.

Don't worry, everything is coming to the beast that is PS4. :)

they will have spent years building assets that are optomised for this gen. this is really a dumb idea

Maybe it's a next generation game from the start but they will port it to current generation?..

Doubt it... most devs make a higher poly count model first then shave it down. GTA 4 has some impressive geometry even 5 years later... it really shines with texture mods and Icenhancer. If they do port it over just the boost in resolution and draw distances is all they would need.

No and i am not clicking link to find out why you think so. It is probably about next gen and graphics. You want better graphics buy a pc because i guarnantee it will be releases for pc

Errr, how about no.

If Rockstar decides to delay it again I'm perfectly fine with that there are so many other games coming out that will be incredible! :)

I'm getting pretty tired of all these lame douchy articles that have "What i want" and "Why it should" in the title. GTA 5 will come out when Rockstar is good and ready to release it.

Coming from someone who reads these 'douchy' articles, I'd rather see someone's opinion than 45 people post the same piece of news over and over again. :)

Gabe just delayed Half-Life 3 even more because he saw and read this article and thought it was an amazing idea.

It may be a pipe dream, but I am positive that Valve is waiting for next gen consoles/steam box. They already officially said that source 2 is in the making and they are waiting for a great game to roll out with it
FarCryLover182  +   1001d ago
I'm sure it's all coming along. I bet HL3 comes on the 10 year anniversary of HL2.
derek1st  +   1001d ago
You see, this just proves that unlike most gaming companies, they care about putting out a great game MORE than sales. Good Job rockstar, already pre-ordered and looking forward to GtaV!
Mr-SellJack  +   1001d ago
Smell no!i wasn't ever considering buying GTAV if it came out early with much better and unique games out there but releasing too late is a bad thing especially with COD,BF4,AC.Sep is the best release date imo
PersonMan  +   1001d ago
Please no. I have been looking forward to GTA V and if they bring it to PS4, that would be totally unfair. Also, I already have it pre-ordred for PS3.
